During this quarter, the TDRP made progress in supporting implementation for the next phase of the African Union DDR Program (DDRCP), maintains its technical and financial assistance provided at the country level in CAR, Mali, DRC, Yemen and continues to monitor events in South Sudan. This report contains brief updates of work undertaken at country level over this second quarter and covers progress made and the key partnership agreements reached with the African Union (AU).
Whilst all activities noted below are associated with the TDRP portfolio, not all the deliverables or outputs were directly funded by the TDRP trust fund. There are pre-existing World Bank and other trust fund allocations channeled through other projects, outside of TDRP that support engagement with the African Union, CAR, DRC, Mali and South Sudan. Similarly, consultants and staff working with TDRP are not paid entirely by the TDRP Trust Fund, but also through World Bank’s own budget for DDR operations across and through other trust funds, such as the United Nations – World Bank Partnership Trust Funds, and World Bank budgets made available to support implementation of activities in CAR, DRC, Mali, and South Sudan.
